To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:
- The total amount, in U.S. dollars, recovered by DHHS/CMS from long-term care recipients in all states through the Medicaid Estate Recovery Program in years 2018, 2019 and 2020.
- Please aggregate this data by state and year, if possible. (If this is not possible, please let me know.)
The requested information will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.
In order to help determine my status to assess fees, you should know that I am a freelance journalist whose work has been regularly published by print and digital news outlets and magazines. You can view my portfolio at www.erinmariemiller.com/journalism.
Disclosure of the requested information to me is in the public interest because it is likely to contribute significantly to public understanding of the impact of decisions, operations and/or activities of the government and is not primarily in my commercial interest.
Because this request is being made as part of a news-gathering effort with a high likelihood of publication, I request a waiver of all fees. If a fee waiver is not granted, I am willing to pay up to $25 for the requested information. If the fee for this request exceeds this amount, please notify me in writing prior to beginning work on the request.
I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.
Erin Marie Miller
